  • Our History

    An amalgamation in Newcastle in 1913 between Anderson, Son and Hedley and Atkinson & Garland, gave birth to the present trading name. For the following 75 years the firm was based at Anderson house in Market Street - the first purpose built auction rooms outside London.

    Throughout the 20th century the firm developed invaluable experience as auctioneers of art treasures and furnishings at ancestral castles and large country houses in the area. Outstanding amongst these were Callaly Castle, Lambton Castle, and most recently in the 1980’s and 1990’s Slaley Hall, Acomb House, and Elsdon Tower in Northumberland.

    In 1988, the firm moved to premises at Marlborough House in Marlborough Crescent, Newcastle and we continued to build on our success. In 2003 we achieved the top price ever paid for a work of art in the North East, when a painting by Yorkshire artist, Atkinson Grimshaw, fetched £242,000.

    Exciting New Saleroom for the 21st Century.

    In April 2005 we brought all our Newcastle sales under one roof. This means that all our regular sales of fine art, antiques and collectors items and our sales of general antiques and quality furnishings will be held at one location offering ample free parking, full disabled access to all parts of the building, light refreshments at viewing and sale times, and many other amenities. The new, combined saleroom is called Anderson House and held its first fine art, antiques and collectors sale at the end of April.

    These purpose-built premises constitutes the biggest investment in our firms history. With an emphasis on superb display and lighting, excellent marketing, together with even safer handling of items, this enables us to offer our clients by far the most modern and up to date buying and selling facilities in the region. Ideally situated less than two minutes from the A1 at Westerhope Village it is easily accessible from the north and south, from the A69 (Cumbria and M6) and the main central motorway (Newcastle and east).
